a day with the girls!

After a long day at work, my blogger bff Nicole sent me the best text ever “come meet us at the pool”. I was so happy and immediately headed home to change and head to The Riviera.

I met up with Nicole and her friend Chasity at the pool. The pool had fun music and everyone there looked like they were having the time of their lives.

Yes, sometimes I do selfie. Especially when I have gorgeous friends.

After some great pool vibes, I had to check out the gorgeous room Nicole and Chas were staying in for the weekend.

I was obsessed with the décor of the room and how much The Riviera has changed. I remember visiting Palm Springs as a kid and it was so outdated. They’ve made it fit perfectly with the midcentury theme of the desert.

The girls invited me to hit dinner with them with two new friends from Miami that they met at the pool. We then met up with Ana (who is also a fashion blogger… small world!) and her high school BF Katie. Katie brought her sweet baby Vienna (I hope I spelled it right). We hit the hot spot Trio and had great girls talk at the table.

Such an amazing day with great friends and new friends! Isn’t that what life is all about.

Color Blocked.

This was the last look Nicole collaborated on at The Saguaro. This time we utilized the color walls for great color blocked shots. When we were brainstorming this look, we both found shots against the colorful walls and just knew that had to be a backdrop.

I styled my color block look with a turquoise and white hounds tooth jumpsuit by Michael Kors. The print of the jumpsuit played well in contrast to the wall and helped me still pop against it. I kept my look retro with my oversized pearl necklace and Louis Vuitton wedges.

Nicole styled herself with this boho chic look. She wore a printed tribal maxi from Forever21 with a Michael Koru belt. Then coordinated her accessories with a brown clutch and wedges. I loved how our looks differed, but it showed our personal style.

We had lots of fun shooting on various hotel balconies… hopefully no one were in the rooms while we were shooting. If they were, I’m sure they had fun watching us.

Nicole had a gorgeous boho chic look with her maxi dress and wedges.

#trappedinbirkenstocks

Happy Thursday! Are all of you posting #tbt photos today? lol I definitely have a throwback for you all… Birkenstocks! Yes, the “Jesus sandals”! I remember in middle school all the girls in school had them and I REALLY wanted a pair too. I maybe wore those like 5 times… smh. Well Birkenstocks have reappeared in my life and I am OBSESSED. They are so comfortable and really make any look casual chic. (I might be stretching it with that, but I just really like them.) This will definitely be my summer essential sandal this year.

Pepsi Can: The New Accessory!

This weekend I was chosen to blog for Pepsi’s tumblr  for the superbowl. I wrote my #Beyoncebowl post (that is below!) so feel free to check out the tumblr to see my posts along with many from other great bloggers. In tribute to Pepsi, I did a mini shoot with my new accessory… my Pepsi can. 

Classy or Trashy? NBA Team Heels

Shoe company, Herstar, have now created a shoe to appeal to the sporty fashionista. They have new heels that feature each of the 30 NBA teams.The heels featured are 6 inches with a 3 inch platform and are covered in Swarovski crystals. The price point on the heels is $2249.99, but if you don’t want to spend as much there are a line of microsuede heels that are $99.99. 
Here are some of the Swarovski crystalized heels: 

Unfortunately, Herstar is still waiting on the licensing to go through with the NBA. So any shoes that you order as of right now will be on backorder.

What do you think? Are the shoes classy or trashy?
